Set on the rugged Atlantic Coast, Cádiz, Spain is constantly battered by wind and waves. The breakwater is built of a massive stone wall and these cement blocks, which are slowly being reclaimed by the ocean. The blocks are so solid and strong, yet they are crumbling and the velvety moss growing on them makes them look so soft, like carpeting. They are obviously no match for the mighty Atlantic Ocean.
